I was surprised to see that the whole place was full for dinner and we had to wait for a free table. As we were staying at the hotel above this wasn’t a problem and I am glad we were patients and didn’t go to another restaurant because we were rewarded with an amazing dinner. We loved the service and... More

We have been enjoying Villa Italia for years, going back to when they were in a seedy strip mall up the road. Much better location and larger in the hotel. Family owned and operated with real attention to the service and food. Given there is a celiac in the owner's family, they are informed for those with gluten issues and... More

We have been here before, but went twice on this visit to Stamford.First time we ate on the patio. Very nice, with the park just across the street. Good service, great cocktails and very good food.

It's really too bad that a restaurant that may have above average food and service can lose a good review because they refused to ask a family to control their terribly behaved 14 month old who was allowed to scream bloody-murder and bang toys on the table for the entire duration of their meal. Certainly these were bad parents who... More

We had to eat here because it was near our hotel. The pasta dish I shared with my daughter was tasty, but to share a bowl of pasta for $19 is a bit much. Our waiter was excellent and the atmosphere was nice and relaxing.

We ate here on the first Saturday in June and, again, we had a lovely meal here. The food is extremely good, fresh ingredients, well-prepared and well presented. I have had better Italian food, but not by much and it was always in a much more expensive restaurant. I really like this restaurant and really like eating here but I... More

It's rare to get the chance for a restaurant connected to a Hampton Inn. This is a nice small Italian restaurant, but the small seating area means it can get quite noisy quickly. So avoid the typical busy times unless you are ok with a less than quiet dinner. (I just wish they offered the squash ravioli all the time....had... More
